Play against us on DraftKings with GPP games starting at just $.25 cents

Top Quarterback Value Plays

Cam Newton  – Great matchup this week against a weak Colts defense, Newton has one of the best CPP for a QB this week at $331 on DraftKings and $390 on FanDuel which is very good as well.

Russell Wilson – With a CPP of $316 Russell had the lowest CPP for QB’s based on an average projection of just 17 fantasy points.

Joe Flacco $5,500 –  Not a favorite among fantasy football players, but should have to throw a lot against the chargers who have been getting beat in the secondary.  At a price of $5,500 on DraftKings, Flaccos value is great and will allow you to fit a number of other studs in your lineup.  Flacco’s average projection is 18 fantasy points, but I can see him breaking 20 FPTS this week.

Mathew Stafford  $5,800 – This is one on my contrarian plays in GPP tournaments this week.  Stafford has fell out of favor this yea along with Calvin Johnson, but has put 2 good weeks together lately and now has a great matchup against a Kansas City defense that gives up the most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Top Running Back Value Plays

Todd Gurley – Every DFS play should be on Gurley this week on both DraftKings and FanDuel.  His DrafKings Salary is just $6,300 with an average projection of 16 points giving him a $417 cost per point providing great value.  Playing the 49ers this week and looking at the Vegas lines, Gurley should have a very good day.  Check out his FanDuel salary.

Jonathan Stewart $4,100 – The experts have him at just 9 fpts this week, but with that weak colts run defense I can see him blowing that away and being a great value even if its just for a FLEX option on DraftKings this week.   Based on the 9 point projection his CPP is $460.

Sneaky GPP Plays

Khiry Robinson  –  Playing the Giants this week and scoring decent fantasy points for a guy in a three  way time share, Khiry provides a sneaky low cost option to get other studs like Julio Jones and Gronk into your lineup.
Anton Andrews $3,300 – At just 5 points projected, his own coach said he deserves more touches this week which should help lower his $429 CPP this week on DraftKings.


Top Wide Receiver Value Plays

Calvin Johnson – Playing the worst fantasy D against WR’s, Johnson should be lightly used giving you an edge in your GPP tournaments this week.  His number based on his salary of $7,900 and his projection of just 10 points is expensive, but if you are like me and think he can score 15 fpts, you will definitely consider him a better value.

Brandon Cooks –  Cooks has been kind of a let down this year not really having a break out game, but he has a lot of good matchups.  This week against the Giants the experts project 10 fpts for  him, which is in line with what he usually scores.  If he can score fantasy owners a TD this week I can see his $552 CPP dropping to $337 based on his $5,400 DraftKings salary.  This is the type of upside we find for our members of Salary Cap Crusher.

Top Tight End Value Plays

Tyler Eifert – Based on his projection Eifert is not a value you play, but the Steelers have been the worst defense at covering the TE, just see what Gates and Gronk did to them.  Expert Eifert to be his 10pts projection making him a great value on DraftKings at his $5,300 salary.

Delanie Walker $4,100 –  Houston has been getting beat up the last few weeks.  This is a great matchup for Walker.  If he can find the endzone this week, he will provide a great value to DFS players who drafted him.

Top Defense Value Plays

Rams – A great matchup against the 49ers who may be without Carlos Hyde this week.  At just 10 fpts they provide the best CPP for a defense at $321 and their $3,200 Salary on DraftKings for week 8.

Panthers –  Andrew Luck has been very unlucky this season.  Fantasy defenses have been feasting on the Colts this year and the Pathers secondary has actually been playing very week against fantasy WR’s this year.

FanDuel & DraftKings Strategy: Low Cost Sleeper Picks

Win FanDuel DraftKings

Everybody that plays large millionaire maker or GPP tournaments on FanDuel or DraftKings at some point needs to fill out their lineups with some low cost, high upside players. Those players using the Salary Cap Crush have probably noticed a number of these on this weeks player value sheet.

If you are in one of those large GGP tournaments on FanDuel or DraftKings this week with 383,000 entries in it, you will have trouble winning your contest if you have the same lineup as 200,000 of those entries.

For those of you that didn’t notice or didn’t get your Salary Cap Crusher sheet this week, here are a few low salary high upside options to help you round out your lineup.


Davante Adams $5,500 (FanDuel) $4,400 (DraftKings) – His price looks good on both sites, but everybody is ALL over him.  Try James Jones instead.

James Jones $4,500 $4.200 – On DraftKings his price is very close to Davante Adams, but on FanDuel he is priced better, $4,500!  The Packers have not talked about Jones’ role, but I would imagine it would be pretty significant especially in the red zone where he had 13 TD’s a few years ago.  Add to that no Jordy Nelson.

Cole Beasley $3,200 – Another guy I used a lot at the end of last year.  Look to Beasley to get all the underneath stuff while Dez gets all the attention from the Giants.

Chris Ivory – Though not really a sleeper, his salary is cheap because of the Jets offense.  Manyu people figure as long as he gets in the end zone once he will be worth it.  I figure he gets in at least 2 TD’s and 100 yards.

Sam Bradford $7,500 FanDuel – I love me some Sam Bradford today.  He should have to throw a lot against the Atlanta Falcons with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.  His price is very cheap which allows you to stack your lineup with other studs.

New York Jets Defense $2,900 – Say what you will about the Jets, but with all the free agent signings they should be much improved.  On DraftKings they are going for as little as $2,900 and they are playing the Cleveland Browns this week.  BTW, can you name me two receivers from that team?? Yeah I thought so.
